Are You Searching for Noninvasive Ways to Decrease Fat? Here Are Laser Lipolysis Solutions that Could Help
Liposuction is an invasive surgical process that uses suction to extract fat deposits from the body. While the results of liposuction may last long-term, not everyone may benefit from this approach – so it’s essential that you speak to your physician about all available treatment options, and see whether he/she recommends this particular solution for you.
Laser lipolysis can be safely performed in your doctor’s office with less side effects than traditional liposuction. Your physician will use paddle-like applicators attached to paddle-like applicators that emit laser energy to heat fat cells without harming nearby skin and tissues, thus naturally dissolving away deposits. Furthermore, these paddles also contract skin post procedure so loose skin won’t develop post treatment.
Syneron’s SmartLipo and Osyris’ Lipotherme are among the more well-known laser lipolysis procedures, employing 1064nm wavelength YAG lasers to heat and disrupt fat cells; each system differs in terms of how it does this: SmartLipo’s SelectPulse technology delivers energy in customized pulses for reduced tissue damage while simultaneously dismantling membranes of fat cells to ensure complete removal; on the other hand, Lipotherme uses 980nm wavelength diode continuous-wave laser to liquefy fat cells before removal via suction coagulative effect on small blood vessels to reduce bruising, swelling, and bleeding; both procedures result in effective lipolysis treatments with minimal side effects:
Cryolipolysis, similar to SmartLipo but using cold temperatures instead of laser energy, works similarly by freezing fat cells so they’re easier for your body to break down and eliminate. Cryolipolysis may also help smooth skin post-laser lipo procedures.
Photonic Lipolysis, also known as red light therapy, is an FDA-approved noninvasive alternative to laser lipolysis for noninvasive fat reduction. This therapy works on the principle that fat cells are particularly responsive to light; during your doctor’s visit to your treatment area they will use an applicator equipped with lenses to focus the light onto any subcutaneous fat tissues below your skin containing fat cells that respond. These lights cause fat cells to create small openings in their membranes which lead to their death over time.
All noninvasive treatments, such as laser lipo or CoolSculpting, are generally safe. But there are certain considerations you should keep in mind before opting for one of these noninvasive procedures. Laser lipo and CoolSculpting aren’t weight loss solutions so aren’t appropriate for people trying to lose a substantial amount of weight, while they should also not be taken by those taking medications which render them light sensitive.
